Aptos native Nikki Hiltz was in the zone Saturday afternoon — the carefree zone. She shrugged off the triple-digit temperature — it was 107 degrees at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium — and set a new personal record in the 1,500-meter race at the U.S. Track and Field Outdoor Championships. Hiltz, a junior at Arkansas, took sixth in a star-studded final by passing five runners on the final lap to finish in 4 minutes, 10.28 seconds.
Santa Cruz’s Liz Patterson took second place in the high jump with a leap of 6 feet, 3.25 inches, and Scotts Valley’s Vanessa Fraser had a last-lap kick to take seventh in the 5,000-meter race at the USATF Outdoor Championships at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium on Friday. Rio Olympian Vasthi Cunningham was the only high jumper to clear 6-4.25 and cleared 6-6.25 to ice her win. Third-place finisher Inika McPherson cleared 6-3.25 on her second attempt.
Aptos native Nikki Hiltz — fresh off her runner-up finish in the 1,500 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships — is one of several locals competing at the USATF Outdoor Championships, which run Thursday through Sunday in Sacramento. In addition to personal bests and bragging rights at Sacramento State’s Hornet Stadium, athletes are looking to qualify for the IAAF World Championships on Aug. 5-13 in London. Hiltz’s top goal is to make the final.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
